Are we all online?

I’m always interest in what the Beyond Distance Learning Alliance at Leicester University are doing. Professor Gilly Salmon was the first person I met from Leicester, she had just published her book on e-tivities and was running some workshops on it – from that small beginning Carpe Diem developed; you can download their Carpe-Diem-Guide-June2011-final here under CC Licence. On the Research to Practice, Innovation to Mainstream page do go and look at the videos at the bottom, especially the “SWIFT: Completed virtual genetics lab” and the “Relating Research to Practice” video.
Are you into OER (Open Educational Resources)? Here are a couple of things you might like to try. First a little test for your department or institute. The web2rights site is excellent, I’ve mentioned it before and I’m certain it will come up again as will the OER InfoKit. This particular publication for the InfoKit is especially for managers – go on, have a go at using this 🙂
